Are we talking about grits or Southern Gentleman?

I don't like grits.

I consider myself a Southern Gentleman. I have also been characterized as a "dirty rotten scoundrel" (PG version of original statement).

Hunter S. Thompson, a Southern Gentleman and one of the great American Writers of the 20th Century, described himself as "a mean hillbilly with a heart full of hate."

I think that the Southern Gentleman is a mass of contradictions wrapped in a veneer of apparent gentility.

I so agree. How beautifully phrased. It is also true of Northern gentlemen and Western gentlemen.

Whoops! I realize with horror that my very poor attempt (references to Western Men and northern Men) at humor could be seen by some as outrageously sexist.  I want to hasten to apologize in advance to anyone who saw it that way.

Donna,

That is what is so much fun about this thread - it is totally random!  Everyone needs a little absurdity once in awhile.  Yes, it hit me earlier, we had gone from Southern Gentlemen, to Grits, to what could be percieved as "Man-Bashing"; but before it got too far, we got back to grits (God Bless You, David!).  It's just good fun.  We are letting off steam, and humor is important, too.  And, humor is always based in the controversial.

Yes, I was aware of being sexist, too; but your underlying message was priceless, (taking the "man" out of it, and making it the "everyone").  And, MedicBoyMatt did a nice job of equalizing the sexism. 

Not to over-analyze, but this is fun!  When we run out of grits comments, I'm going to bring up black-eyed peas, and see where we can go from there! ROFL!

I tip my hat to your mental and verbal astuteness, and your sense of fair-play.

JoanieReb

Oh, Dear Lord!  Pepper juice and green onion!!!!!  All is forgiven for that "thin grits with molassas" jab. 

Not to rush things, but pretty soon, we have to get into, "what is the perfect dinner, South and North?  East, and West?

Save up, everyone, for when we have exhaused the talk - and spin-offs  - from "Black-Eyed Peas"!

Re-highjackin' the thread.

The "Southern Gentleman" is a holdover from the time when there were those who considered themselves gentlemen and everyone else peasants -- like knights and cavaliers and royalty. I figure that the per-capita percentage of gentlemen is indistinguishable from any other part of the country with a few exceptions which I will not name. Of course, we still have no definition of southern gentleman.

And now a word from our sponsor: Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, chicken gravy, a mess of greens, sweet tea and a Moon Pie.

Oh my moon pie!!!  a friend from the round table brought me back a tin of mini moon pies  of different flavors.  The tin is in the shape of a moon pie. 

 

fried chicken , my grandmother's fried taters, cold slaw , cornbread and coca cola (of course now diet  I haven't had the real thing is sooo long ).

 

Speaking of fried chicken  I had a chicken breast in Charleston a few years ago that was the best ever.  It was coated in cornflakes.  served with red rice and black beans .  Place called the Cornbread cafe.  Yep I had a plate of cornbread too.  A whole plate !!!!  

Okay now I am hungry and I have go knaw on a carrot .

Growing up I watched my Grandfather eat this quite regularly for breakfast and lunch, it was the original fast food, Cajun style.  He sure could cook for a man (while we are being sexist):


COUCHE COUCHE
 

A very old-time, traditional breakfast, couche couche is the Cajun version of fried cornmeal mush.
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup water
Heat the oil in a heavy pot or preferable a cast iron dutch oven. Mix the dry ingredients, then add the milk and water. Pour the batter into the hot oil, and allow a crust to form on the bottom before stirring. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally; cook for about 15 minutes.
Serve in bowls with milk and sugar, like a hot cereal.
